Imidazoanthraquinone derivatives for the chromofluorogenic sensing of basic anions and trivalent metal cations.


Four imidazoanthraquinone derivatives (2a-d) were synthesized and characterized and their coordination behavior against selected anions and cations tested. Acetonitrile solutions of probes showed charge-transfer absorptions in the 407-465 nm range. The four probes emitted in the 533-571 nm interval. The recognition ability of 2a-d was evaluated in the… (More)
